Hedges Red Mountain 2015
|Region||United States, Washington, Red Mountain|
Cabernet Sauvignon makes up just over half of this wine, with the balance mostly Merlot and Syrah along with pinches of other varieties. Aromas of cherry meats, vanilla, wood spice and game lead to medium-bodied, well-balanced fruit flavors. A tart finish caps it off.
Black cherry and tobacco accents lead to dense flavors that build toward firm tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Petit Verdot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Cão and Souzão. Best after 2020. 2,443 cases made.
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah, there are 32,200 cases of the 2015 CMS, a medium-bodied, open-knit, savory wine that offers up aromas and flavors of berry fruits and soil. It's a simple, somewhat ephemeral red that's competently made and decidedly inexpensive.
